Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Paubox HIPAA Center! HIPAA Center is designed to give you a quick glance into the Top 5 moments that we saw happen in the HIPAA industry last month.
Without further ado, let’s get started.
Here are the Top 5 HIPAA moments from February 2017:
Children’s Pediatric Hospital Fined $3.2 Million
Children’s Pediatric Hospital in Dallas, Texas has paid a fine of $3.2 million in accordance to several breaches of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
Children’s Hospital is the seventh largest pediatric healthcare provider in the nation. This fine was a result of multiple disclosures of electronic protected health information and failure to comply with HIPAA’s security rule.
How Large is the HIPAA Industry?
The HIPAA industry is vast. Here at Paubox, it’s been surprising to see how many different types of organizations face HIPAA compliance hurdles.
In our case, the market for HIPAA Compliant Email is comprised of a lot more organizations than just hospitals, dentists and nursing facilities.
While there’s a lot of information on Google about the size of U.S. Healthcare, I could not find a comprehensive resource for the size of the HIPAA industry. So I did the research myself.
Memorial Health Systems fined for Lack of Audit Controls
Memorial Healthcare Systems has paid the U.S Department of Health and Human Services $5.5 million as a result of violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability act of 1996.
Memorial Healthcare Systems manages six hospitals, an urgent care center and an elderly facility within South Florida.
The Future of Digital Health in a Trump Presidency, a Fireside Chat
There’s lots of speculation about what will happen to healthcare innovation and technology under the new Trump administration.
How will the repeal of the ACA impact digital health? What is the future of innovation in and around value-based care delivery?
To find the answers, we hosted a panel of experts at 500 Startups in San Francisco to explore how the recent change in administration might impact the industry.
The annual HIMSS Conference is without a doubt the granddaddy of healthcare conferences. This year it was held in Orlando from February 19th – 23rd.
